Making off

The goal for this project was to create a space consisting of recognizable elements from the original library. With this building blocks a new space could be created that felt like it could fall over at any moment. With walls and roofs that are supported by wobbly piles of books.To achieve this custom software wasdeveloped with which you could stack the building blocks by hand in VR.
